We have a range of electrical enclosures for joining cables or mounting equipment and controls. There is the weatherproof box in plastic, adaptable metal box in black or galvanised and the steel electrical cabinet. They can all be used for terminating cables when used with the appropriate connectors. They all provide physical protection for switches and meters as well as acting as a safeguard from electrocution. Some are for use indoors and some have been especially designed for use outside in most kinds of weather. They come in hundreds of different shapes and sizes and are all made to a very high standard.

The weatherproof box can be used as a small enclosure to terminate cables and protect them from damage. Because they all have IP ratings they also provide protection from dust and moisture. The boxes can be round, square or rectangular with either a standard, raised or transparent lid. With so many configurations they are able to accommodate a wide range of electrical components.
In steel conduit installations adaptable boxes are used to distribute conduits in multiple directions. They are available as standard with either plain sides or with 20mm knockouts to allow for conduit entry. Plain sided boxes can be customised by cutting 20mm and 25mm holes to accept large and small conduits as desired. They are available in both black enamel and galvanised with a range of rubber lid gaskets to fit most boxes. They are not weatherproof and should therefore never be used outside for any electrical installations.
One of the best ways to mount electrical equipment is inside a steel electrical cabinet. This is especially true if the apparatus needs to be periodically monitored or inspected. A hinged door will allow access to view, take readings or replace faulty items quickly and easily. Also because these electrical enclosures are lockable, entry can easily be restricted to specific individuals.
